Boating Accidents

There are many opportunities for boating in Austin. Lake LBJ, Canyon Lake, and of course Lake Travis, Lake Austin, and Lady Bird Lake are, in my opinion, some of the most spectacular lakes in Texas. Every year, there are thousands of people who are maimed, injured, or even killed in boating accidents. Accidents can occur at any time and in a number of ways. These include accidents on large, ocean cruise vessels to small pleasure boats that are taken out on the weekends.

Boating Accidents vs Car Accidents

When you think of a car accident, most law enforcement entities will look at the “Rules of the Road” to determine which driver or other individual may be at fault in an accident. After all, we all have responsibilities when it comes to keeping our Austin highways safe. The same holds true when we are out on the water. There are certain rules that the Coast Guard will use in order to determine who was at fault in any given accident.

Thousands of boaters every year will take to the water. As an Austin personal injury law firm, we deal with many boaters that have been injured in accidents.
